Visit a digital playground
Your kiddo will be mesmerised by the interactive attractions at Mosh! (pronounced “moshi”), a digital family edutainment park. At Doodle Aquarium, she’ll draw a sea creature from her own imagination, scan to transfer the drawing onto the big screen, where it’ll interact with other creatures. Over at Paper Plane Adventure, your aircraft-crazy kid will make and launch his own paper plane, which will then be transformed into an actual aeroplane on screen. His aircraft will then take everyone on a trip to different destinations ― from a secluded jungle to caves! Tickets cost $22/child aged 3 to 12; $28/adult. A pair of tickets for a child with an accompanying adult costs $48. Open from 10am to 9pm. Mosh! is at #03-01 Palawan Kidz City, 31 Beach View, Sentosa. Alight at Beach station.

Learn to ski
Here’s your chance to help your mini-dynamo brush up his skiing skills ahead of your next wintry family vacay. Urban Ski organises Kids Club classes every Saturday for children aged between 4 and 1.

Kids Club lessons range from $130/child aged 4 to 6 to $80/child aged 14 to 17. Urban Ski is at #01-46 Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Boulevard. Call 6238-0575 to enquire or book lessons.
